    Going great guns, is the 3MT. One small (and it is small) note on this inspiring website. A colour coded progress diagram, as appears on a couple of other newbuild projects, might be a useful visual aid for idiots like me with a lousy memory. So much has already been achieved that I find myself repeatedly having to boogie back through earlier news entries to remind myself what's at which stage!

    82045 must be getting to a point where a tentative 'first steaming' date is forming in the minds of the builders. Exciting times!

    How big would the key have to be?! And how many would you have to make? Only takes one crew to mislay it... ;)

    You'd need a very big sofa in which to lose a std gauge loco's key. :D
